Stunned, amazed and jealous here. Pull up a chair and tell the stories sometime when you get a chance.

Wow. Impressive. Please tell stories some time! You, PG, Micah and others who really truly toured!

I always wanted to be a tourhead, but I was never cool enough. Pesky things like college and work kept getting in the way. I'd travel for shows, but not terribly far, so I never got to the West Coast or places like MSG or anything in New England. Luckily, though, there'd generally be a series of shows in a string, so I guess you could call that a "mini-tour." Roughly DC to Alpine Valley, the farthest being Iowa ... a TDIH, and a smoking show, actually!

Mostly 78-85, Midwest area, and then later in Colorado, but not traveling at that point cuz I had a real job (versus a job like pouring coffee that you can leave for a week). Last show was 92, then I was overseas, like now, and they somehow didn't come where I lived ...
